Re: Forces on a dockline while docking....

We have used this product and love it! It creates a huge easy to use loop.

dockingstick.com - Home (watch the video on cleat use)

For our 24,000 lbs sailboat the line and loop are composed of six feet of 3/4inch, 8 plait high quality nylon line. I would not want to go in any faster than 1kt though.
